Soccer Scholars Foundation

Yours in Soccer has helped Soccer Scholars Foundation support and place more than 70 student athletes over the past five years. Without both the mentoring and financial support from YSF, many of these student athletes would not be on the right path to playing in college.

LA Galaxy

“Yours in Soccer has been a fantastic support for our student-athletes in regards to college preparation, admissions, and recruitment. Our students who are working with YSF are more knowledgeable about college-related tasks and processes that must occur while in high school. Ultimately, YSF has empowered the student-athletes to take ownership of the path to being collegiate student-athletes.”

Manhattan Soccer Club

“Manhattan Soccer Club is a youth soccer club that is home to more than thirteen hundred travel players and exists inside the heart of New York City.  Among our membership, approximately one out of eight families are facing significant financial challenges, which often negatively impacts the primary education for their children.  From a soccer perspective, Manhattan Soccer Club has always done what it could to serve and accommodate these families in need, but until we partnered with YSF and Prestige Prep, there were far too many scholar-athletes with financial hardships who were falling behind their peers as they advanced through middle and high school.  Thanks to the generous support of YSF and the operational expertise of Prestige Prep, we now offer our scholar-athletes some much needed hands-on assistance with academic test prep and a better high school track over multiple years of service, which in no small measure will help these players tackle the challenges of high school academics.”

Prestige Prep

“Prestige Prep is thrilled to partner with YSF in the initiative to offer academic test prep and overall support to a specific eligible audience within the Manhattan Soccer Club. We feel extremely fortunate to be able to touch the lives of young scholar-athletes as they begin the search for the right high school which can lead them to college and beyond. Preparing students for academic success alongside their soccer journeys is a pairing we believe in – and we are thankful to YSF for this shared vision and important partnership.”
